Added reply in a thread Powdercoating an expansion chamber 8/14/2013 11:21 AM

I would suggest that powder coating a pipe is only for show and it will not last under the heat of the exhaust. I would suggest doing a ceramic coating and it will last almost forever. It looks a bit like chrome and will last and not stain. Paw Paw

Your bike should not need a 51 tooth rear sprocket. You need a 47 or 48 on the rear to get the correct torque.

Yes, I do know what you are taking about....If you run too much octane you will see just what you were seeing in the performance of the engine. The engine does run cooler as the fuel burns slower and you will lose power as the result. I would suggest ... more »

I made a bike carrier for the trailer hitch to use on the back of my pickup truck. It incorporates a Bike Shoe to hold the bike, so no straps. I also built in a stabilizer for the unit so the carrier and the bike are rock solid during transport, unlike ... more »

A broken timing chain tells me you may have bent a valve. Why would you put on a new head and not put on a new timing chain? You may want to also check the fuel pump.
